Ganko operates two stores in Mumbai and one in Kolkata, offering a range of in-house brands as well as some of the well-known international ones.


The first Ganko store was launched in Kalbadevi in the 1940s by JM Kothari. Subsequently, the Kolkata store opened in the 1950s which was steered by his brother Chandubhai and family.

Ganko’s third retail store which was set up in Mumbai’s premier business district Nariman Point in the 1980s coincided with the rapid changes in both the eyewear and retail sectors that began at that time.

Today, Ganko’s retail business is characterised by

  • State-of-the-art Technology
  • Wide range of premium branded offerings
  • Spectrum of high-end services – with dedicated and highly trained staff
  • Commitment to customer satisfaction
